Kuala Lipis

growing up as children of an army officer; constant change of schools, change of houses, change of friends, discipline, spoiling and pampering of course, and very broad perspective and experience of life. all in all, i had 6 schools, one of which i attended with the infamous Siti Nurhaliza at kuala lipis. yup, this city girl used to live in a town which you could drive through in 2 minutes, attended a majestic clifford school, all fresh air and aplenty of oxygen. Mak had wanted to come back to reminisce the past for quite a while now. we decided last weekend was a perfect opportunity to do just that.

going to lipis, we stopped by raub for their famous fish head curry. that was yummy. we had 6 hotels to choose from; we picked centrepoint hotel, but when we arrived, the exterior was too scary looking (god knows how they ranked 1st on tripadvisor), we decided to try 2nd ranking on the list; plaza hotel lipis. the place was clean and ok for the price i guess. only rm120 for a family room. anyways, my family has a way of making a place interesting. we went around the city, lipis now even has a new township, which we went through as well. going through the camp we stayed for 1 year brought back so much good memories with Ayah. Our schools were also still so gorgeous, and we even found the shop we used to go to.

for dinner, of course we went to the rest house on the hilltop for their good that food. still good food there as well. for dessert, since we didn't have much to do, we ended up in karaoke which was fun ;) next day, we realised we've covered everything the day before, so it was just lazing around day for us. on the way back, we dropped by raub for traditional pahang food of tempoyak and sambal hitam. lunch was pretty expensive, but all was delicious, if not really spicy.

we arrived in kl by 3, which just shows how near lipis is, to kl. i dont think we're ever going back, but if we do want to, its so nearby, there wouldn't be any issues.
